Are people aware, that there are 3 different stock oil screens for
T-3's?? Depending on when your engine was built. The difference is in
the diameter of the oil suction pipe. The early one had a 12mm suction
pipe. The stock oil screen was just a rounded dome shape. The next was
14mm diameter. Its screen was was dome shape, but with a grooved
depression in the top of the screen. The third was 16mm, and the screen
is the one with the aluminum piece in the middle, and the spring piece
inside. this spring was a relief for when the screen was plugged with
ice or sludge.

The thing with these CB Perfpormance add-ons, do they fit your engine
and connect to the suction pipe properly.

OH, too, I am looking for a good oil screen for my '64 Ghia. The one
that came out of it was corroded thru from sitting for 40 years with
sludge in it. I have bought a couple on line even specifiying the 14mm
one, but I still get the late model for the 16mm suction.
